Rain: Better late than never (April 9-12, 2012)

It started raining last night. The forecast is for rain the next few days. Normally we get comparatively little rain after the end of March, but any addition is welcome, as we're still considerably below normal for the 2011-2012 rainy season (which ends on June 30). We've had 0.95 inches now since last reporting. That brings us to 24.30 inches for the season. Average annual rainfall in Santa Rosa, California is 31.91 inches, so we are still about seven and a half inches below where we should be, but at least we're approaching the normal range

[Update: Heavy rain on the night of the 11th. We got another 0.95 inches overnight. The total now stands at 25.20 inches for the season.]

[Further update: An additional 0.65 inches on the 12th brings the total to 25.85 inches for the 2011-2012 rainy season. We're getting there...."]
